Lovely horse with nice scopey gaits. Unsteadiness in connection lowers scores- rider gets busy with hands and horse reacts to every movement. Work to keep horse forward into your soft and steady hand so that he is more willing to connect. Ride downward transitions with less hand and more seat and core so that horse does not brace. Super potential for much higher scores.
